Artist: SUUM CUIQUE
Title: Ascetic Ideals
Format: LP
Label: Modern Love
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"For their first release of 2012, Modern Love delivers the second album from Suum Cuique, the analog noise/experimental project from Miles Whittaker, one-half of Demdike Stare. The first Suum Cuique album Midden (YOUNGAM 002LP) was released on Modern Love sub-label Young Americans back in 2010, with these new recordings made in the intervening years and in between sessions for the Demdike Stare album, Elemental. What differentiates this project from all the others Whittaker is involved with is that the material recorded under Suum Cuique was made using analog hardware only, often recorded straight from the mixing desk with no overdubs or edits. The sound veers from the intense shards of noise that make up album opener "Strohtopf" to the padded techno malfunctions of "Kuiper Anomaly," the found sound/shortwave radio signals of "Atlas Levels" to the mystical rotations of "Intonation" and the electrified drones of album closer "Dionysus Decay." Although there are obvious sonic threads running between Suum Cuique and Demdike Stare, the material on Ascetic Ideals is much more stark, at turns recalling the work of Mika Vainio, Eleh, Maurizio Bianchi and even John Carpenter, whose nightmare visions lurk somewhere deep in the mix. Mastered and cut by Lupo at Dubplates & Mastering, limited to 700 copies." - Modern Love.

Artist: SUUM CUIQUE
Title: Midden
Format: LP
Label: Young Americans
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Suum Cuique (pronouned "su-um-kwi-kwe" -- Latin for "to each his own") follows the remit of Young Americans to explore uncharted, experimental, and personal synthscapes, guided by the hand of intuition with an entirely analogue array of machines. In "Lithic Reduction," concrète textures grind like a millstone to release powdery clouds of analog dust, settling only to be dispersed by gusts of blackened distortion, whereas "Red Binary" is distinctly electronic, revolving around muted radar bleeps like the resonance from Selected Ambient Works II soundtracking a speckly pill experience thats starting to go west. The albums centerpiece, the aptly titled "Entropy" nods to the sublimely stoic work of Eleh, radiating microtonal bass shifts while a bitter northerly wind builds in intensity. "Cyclic Redundancy" opens the flipside with a majestically submerged slab of completely obliterated and submerged 4/4, like an unholy collusion between Mika Vainio, Sandwell and Bernard Parmegiani soundtracking a trade union rave in the 1950s, before "Even In Death..." conjures imagery of a eulogy given by a Mongolian throat singer with crows circling overhead. Limited to 400 copies for the world, comes in a deluxe white-on-white embossed sleeve. Mastered at Dubplates and Mastering in Berlin." -Young Americans
